Sarah Wairimu Cohen intend to erect tombstone on the grave of her late husband Tob Cohen at the Jewish cemetery in Nairobi.
In a letter addressed to lawyer Cliff Ombetta who represents Cohen’s family in the murder trial against Wairimu she state she does not expect any interference from them.
“While it is our clients so responsibility to erect an appropriate tombstone on the grave of her late husband, which process has commenced, and does not expect any interference from your client, however if they are in the country they will be free to attend any ceremony regarding the same for which our client will give appropriate notice”,says Wairimu.
This comes after her husband was buried on September 23,2019 under Jewish traditions after hid body was found in a septic tank at his home in Kabete.
Warimu and her co-accused Peter Karanja have since been charged with the murder of her late husband Tob Cohen. They are out on bail pending hearing and determination of their murder trial.
At the same , Sarah’s lawyer Philip Murgor wants the murder case against her mentioned as soon as possible over failure by the DCI and the DPP to obey a court order which allowed his client access to the house to collect her cloths, shoes , handbags and grooming tools.
The order was given on January 16,2020 by high court judge Daniel Ogembo in the presence of all the parties.
“The DPP and DCI have not facilitated the applicant visit seven days later, despite repeated request by the defence team , proving once the recalcitrant and deliberate disobedience of the orders of the high court “, says Murgor.
Wairimu’s lawyer says they are on record stating certain elements within the DCI and ODPP have developed a peculiar and extraordinary interests on the property and matrimonial home of his clients.
Murgor accuses prosecutor Catherine Mwaniki of continuing making submissions in the high court about interests of third parties in the property of deceased and suggest that perhaps it is time for her to declare any conflict of interest in case or relationship with third parties and therefore recuse herself.
